APC Fixes July 7 For Osun Governorship Primaries

The All Progressives Congress APC has fixed July 7, 2018 as the date for its Osun State Governorship Election primaries.

In a schedule sighted by newsmen on social media platforms on Sunday morning, the party revealed the schedule of its programmes and activities ahead of the 2019 General Elections.

The APC in Osun State is however expected to lift the ban on campaigns and expression of interests from Aspirants within its fold this week after it placed a ban on it in 2016.

It adduced early showcase of interest from political gladiators ready to take over from Governor Rauf Aregbesola when his second term ends in November, 2018 immediately after the last general elections as reasons for its action.

The Independent National Electoral Commission had on October 5, 2017 announced that the governorship election in Osun will take place on September 22, 2018 while the Ekiti election holds on July 14, 2018.

About 35 people within the ruling party and from the opposition divide have expressed interests in taking up Aregbesola’s job.
